Hello. This is a PAIN FROM DENTAL WORK question. My
My girlfriend can’t get rid of pain after a crown replacement.
She’s allergic Motrin (ibuprofen)
X2 exedrin 250mg acetaminophen (9am)
Dental work @3:30pm
X2 exedrin 250mg acetaminophen (4:40pm)
X1 Oxy/acetaminophen 5/325 (7pm)
X1 oxy/acetaminophen 5/325 (10:45pm)
Icing her cheek
Still no relief. Anything else she can do? Take more oxy/acetaminophen
Needs an x ray of the crowned tooth done..
Can understand your concerns..
Well, it looks like there is pressure build up in the crowned tooth due to infection or inflammation..
Taking painkillers will have a little effect till the pressure is released..
You can consult an Emergency room and get a painkiller injection for a better pain relief..
Also can you please tell me that was the tooth root canal treated before the crown was placed??
Please write back..
Thank you once again...
